    “Choose tasks that allow and invite varied student thinking

    Choose tools that let students express a variety of ideas

    Celebrate the ideas that surprise you”

    I thought this was lovely and very inspirational! I love the call for teachers to be more open to hearing children’s thinking and being open to being surprised and learning from them; learning from a perspective that they weren’t expecting and didn’t have themself.

    Desmos looks like an amazing tool that provides ways/activities for children to explore and talk about their thinking.
